Ransomware attacks are a growing threat to businesses and individuals alike. These attacks involve hackers taking control of a website or computer system and demanding a ransom in exchange for restoring access.

To protect your website against ransomware attacks, there are a few important steps you can take:

  1. Regularly update your website and any software you use. This will ensure that your website has the latest security patches and features, which can help prevent hackers from taking advantage of vulnerabilities.

  2. Use strong and unique passwords for all your website accounts. This will make it more difficult for hackers to guess or brute force their way into your website.

  3. Use a web application firewall (WAF) to filter out malicious traffic and block known bad actors. (Kratos Hosting secures your website by default, however additional controls can be implemented on your hosting account).

  4. Regularly backup your website and store the backups offsite. This will allow you to quickly restore your website in the event of a ransomware attack.

  5. Educate your team on the risks of ransomware and the importance of following best practices for website security.

By taking these steps, you can greatly reduce the chances of your website being targeted by ransomware attacks and protect your business from the costly effects of such an attack.
